.. contents::
Unpack WebDAVAdmin
==================
1. unpack the WebDAVAdmin distribution file somewhere::
cd ~/tmp/
tar xjf webdavadmin-0.1.tar.bz2
``~/tmp/`` is just an example to be able to reference it in these
installation instructions
Setup PostgreSQL and your database
==================================
1. Install PostgreSQL by the means of your operating system. For
Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 Etch execute::
sudo aptitude install postgresql-8.1
2. Switch to user postgres::
sudo su - postgres
and
1) create a user for WebDAVAdmin::
createuser -SDRP myuser
when prompted type the password for the database user twice
2) create a database::
createdb --owner=myuser --encoding=UTF-8 mydb
3) exit the postgres shell
You may skip theese steps if you want to use an existing database
3. Import the schema for WebDAVAdmin::
psql -h localhost -U myuser mydb < ~/tmp/webdavadmin-0.1/setup/schema.sql
when prompted type the password for your database user.
Setup Apache
============
1. Install, enable and configure apache and the apache modules
- mod_dav
- mod_dav_fs
- mod_auth_pgsql
- libphp5
by the means of your operating system vendor. For Debian GNU/Linux 4.0
Etch this means [1]_::
sudo aptitude install apache2-mpm-prefork libapache2-mod-php5 libapache2-mod-auth-pgsql
sudo a2enmod php5
sudo a2enmod auth_pgsql
sudo a2enmod dav
sudo a2enmod dav_fs
.. [1] if you don't want to use ``sudo`` you may also switch to root.
2. Configure a VirtualHost to use WebDAV and PostgreSQL
authentication, this VirtualHost configuration could look like::
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName davhost.yourdomain.net
DavLockDb /var/run/apache2/davlock/davhost.yourdomain.net
DocumentRoot /var/www
<Directory /var/www/dav>
Options Indexes
Order allow,deny
allow from all
Dav on
# Authentication/Authorization
AuthType Basic
AuthName "WebDAVAdmin example"
AuthBasicAuthoritative Off
AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/auth/davhost.yourdomain.net.passwd
Auth_PG_host localhost
Auth_PG_port 5432
Auth_PG_user myuser
Auth_PG_pwd secret
Auth_PG_database mydb
Auth_PG_pwd_table dav_password
Auth_PG_uid_field username
Auth_PG_pwd_field password
Auth_PG_grp_table dav_group
Auth_PG_grp_user_field username
Auth_PG_grp_group_field groupname
Auth_PG_hash_type MD5
#Auth_PG_log_table dav_log
#Auth_PG_log_uname_field username
#Auth_PG_log_date_field reqdate
#Auth_PG_log_uri_field uri
#Auth_PG_log_addrs_field ipaddr
Auth_PG_authoritative on
require group davroot
</Directory>
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/davhost.yourdomain.net_error.log
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/davhost.yourdomain.net_access.log combined
</VirtualHost>
The directory specified for ``DavLockDb`` must be writable for the
user your apache processes run as. The ``AuthUserFile`` is
specified as a fallback if your PostgreSQL database is not
available.
Install required php modules and classes
========================================
WebDAVAdmin needs Smarty and a PostgreSQL PDO driver for PHP5. To
install these requirements perform the following step::
sudo aptitude install smarty php5-pgsql
on operating systems other then Debian GNU/Linux consult your system
documentation.
Copy WebDAVAdmin files
======================
2. create a new document root directory or a subdirectory inside an
existing one
3. create a subdirectory which you'll later use for WebDAVAdmin::
mkdir /var/www/dav
4. copy the admin subdirectory of the unpacked webdavadmin distribution
file to the directory just created::
cp -R webdavadmin-0.1/admin /var/www/dav/
5. set the filesystem permissions of the dav directory to allow the
user apache is running as to write to the directory
Configure WebDAVAdmin
=====================
The WebDAVAdmin distribution contains a directory ``config`` with
configuration templates that you need to customize for your
environment.
1. ``dbsettings.inc.php``
This file contains the settings for your database connection. The
file should be placed outside the document root for security
reasons. A customized version of this file may look like::
<?php
/** Data source name. */
$dsn = "pgsql:host=localhost port=5432 dbname=mydb";
/** Database user. */
$dbuser = "myuser";
/** Database password. */
$dbpass = "secret";
?>
2. ``config.inc.php``
This file contains the absolute path to your WebDAVAdmin
installation and to your ``dbsettings.inc.php``. A customized
version of this file could be::
<?php
/** DAV area root directory. */
define(DAV_ROOT, '/var/www/dav');
/** Include the database settings. */
include_once('/etc/webdavadmin/dbsettings.inc.php');
?>
After adapting the contents to your environment put this file into
your WebDAVAdmin directory. For example::
cp config.inc.php /var/www/dav/admin/
Be sure to make the subdirectory templates_c of your WebDAVAdmin
directory writable for your apache user [2]_.
.. [2] you could use chown, chmod and/or ACLs to perform this task
Now you should be able to use your installation of WebDAVAdmin by
opening the URL http://davhost.yourdomain.net/dav/admin/ (if you just
followed this instructions).
